A decent Movie as far at Made for TV movies are concerned
I actually liked this movie. I think knowing that it is based on a true story and knowing the story helps me in understanding the movie a bit more. Anytime you make a made for TV movie about a true story you always seem to have trouble. Some of the things that actually happened to this women were just too violent to put on network TV. This would have been much better if it had been made on one of the cable networks were they have a bit more leeway in what they can do.
If you watch this movie without knowing the actual True Story then I think you will come away from this movie disappointed. It is long and really needs to be but the movie did not do justice to the real story. I am a Justine Bateman fan and I thought she did OK in this movie. It certainly was not an award winning performance but it was fine. I was very disappointed in the acting of the protagonist in this movie. I never got the feel of evil that I did when reading the true story. Overall I liked this movie, but would really recommend that you read about the real story. Readers Digest had this story in one of its issues.
